Where have I been?
I know, it's been a few days since I updated here. Last week LinkedIn opened up their "publishing platform" to me; it's sort of my blog for LinkedIn . I've posted a few posts there, which I've also posted over here, and, honestly, they seem to get a great d...

How Does This Apply to Me?
The internet is full of websites offering advice on how to conduct a job search. LinkedIn is packed with job search coaches, recruiters, mentors, advisors, interest groups, and resume writers. They don't always agree, but I've noticed they all have one thin...

"Fool me once, shame on...shame on you. Fool me — you can't get fooled again." --George W. Bush
Well, I nearly unfollowed someone on Twitter today -- a company, actually.. I'm not going to say who, but I am going to say why, which means if they read this blog they'll know it's them (but no one else will, I think). Sorry. Everyone likes a good inspirat...

You Say You Want a Revolution
There's a small revolution building in the business world, spearheaded by people like Liz Ryan of Human Workplace and Stacy Donovan Zapar of Zappos . It's a paradigm shift in the way employees and potential employers interact. In the future these two busine...

A really big shoe
Now I know how those variety-show plate spinner guys felt. I say this a lot, but I'm pretty lucky; this time, it's because I know I have a fairly wide range of options in my career search. I've been focusing on writing, and looking at translation jobs, but ...

To absent friends
This isn't a post about job hunting, or career change. It's a post about gratitude. Yesterday (Monday) was Memorial Day here in the US. It's a day set aside in memory of those who gave their lives in defense of our country. It's a bit strange to people in m...

4 days? Cool!
Well, folks, I have an unexpected 4-day weekend in celebration of Memorial Day. That being the case, I'm going to start by declaring a 4-day weekend here on the blog as well. I'll be back with a new entry on Tuesday. Also (and this is kinda cool) LinkedIn h...

Well this is a bit... meta.
Writer's block sucks. How do I know? Because I have it right now. That's a bad thing for someone who has committed to write a new blog entry every day about his mid-life career change. It's even worse when the field I most want to find work in is writing. S...

You never know where the road might take you
I hit a rough patch this afternoon, and oddly enough, it touched a little bit on what I posted about yesterday. I recently read an article by  Liz Ryan  about a new sort of job search. Liz is an advocate for using "human voice resumes" and, instead of a cov...

Throwing darts
I've been spending a lot of time looking at job boards and trolling through LinkedIn for opportunities in the past couple of weeks. I've even had a couple of conversations with recruiters and hiring offices, by phone and email. The problem has been that mos...
